Has Wales beaten South Africa?


Since the late 1800s, Wales and South Africa have been rugby rivals. In the early years, Wales dominated the match-ups, winning 11 out of 12 games between 1891 and 1899. But since the turn of the century, South Africa has had the upper hand, winning 34 out of 45 games. The two teams have met a total of 50 times, with South Africa winning 36 times, Wales winning 12 times, and there have been two draws.

The most recent match-up between the two teams was in 2014, when South Africa won 28-19. Wales has not beaten South Africa since 1999.

Despite the lopsided recent history, there is still a lot of excitement whenever these two teams face off. Their matches are always hotly contested, and both teams have a lot of pride on the line.

The next time these two teams will meet is in 2018, in Wales. Wales will be looking to end their 19-year losing streak against South Africa. It will be a tough task, but if any team can do it, Wales can.

Wales and South Africa have a long and complicated history. Wales was once a part of the British Empire, and South Africa was once a part of the Dutch Empire. Both countries have been through many changes since then, and both have their own unique cultures.

Wales and South Africa have both had their share of successes and failures. In recent years, Wales has been doing better than South Africa. In fact, Wales has beaten South Africa in a number of ways.

For example, Wales has a higher life expectancy than South Africa. In 2015, the life expectancy in Wales was 81.3 years. In South Africa, it was only 57.1 years. This is a huge difference, and it shows that Wales is a much healthier country than South Africa.

Wales also has a lower crime rate than South Africa. In 2015, there were only 2,836 reported crimes per 100,000 people in Wales. In South Africa, the crime rate was much higher, at 31,513 reported crimes per 100,000 people. This means that it is much safer to live in Wales than it is to live in South Africa.

Wales also has a higher GDP per capita than South Africa. In 2015, Wales had a GDP per capita of $36,900. In South Africa, it was only $5,900. This means that people in Wales are much wealthier than people in South Africa.

So, yes, Wales has definitely beaten South Africa in a number of ways. But that’s not to say that South Africa is a bad country. It’s just that Wales is doing better than South Africa right now.
